RENMINBI, the beautifully intense Brooklyn duo I’ve been privileged to play drums with off and on since 2003, have changed their name! They are now MAGNETIC ISLAND. You can read all about the reasons behind the name change and their future plans here.

As their now-Boston-based drummer (sharing the kit with their fabulous NYC drummer, Dom), I’m thrilled about these changes. They signify the band’s increasing commitment to open collaboration, intensified studio work, frequent digital releases, and other 21st-century-style goodies. Stay tuned for more news about my future work with the ISLAND….some exciting plans are underway.
